v0.3.0 Pulled Pork

This release contains the improvements for milestones 0.2.0 and 0.3.0.

New Features

  • Built-in HTTP configuration and control page
  • Support for up to 4 servos on one servo driver
  • Stepper driver supports 32-bit microstepping via JSON (via TCP) and theoretically UDP packet
  • The bounds of the servo duty cycle are now changeable via UDP packet

Improvements

  • GPIO code foregoes using Espressif's gpio_output_set in favor of much faster direct register manipulation, allowing us to phase out code based on internet demo code

Bugfixes

  • Stepper motor driver sanitizes negative wait_time input
  • Fixed a race condition that caused stops to crash the stepper motor driver
  • Fixed a condition where some devices couldn't connect to the driver's softAP broadcast mode
  • The 5us motor driver timer resolution no longer causes a watchdog timer reset

Other notes

  • Brushed motor driver has been removed from the builds since it is low priority and will not be fully implemented for a long, long time
  • The singular servo driver (servo_driver.c) has been depreciated and removed from the builds since it has been replaced in the product line by the quad servo driver
  • Improvements to the stepper driver hardware design have eliminated a crash or two involving the WiFi controller
  • The built-in website control page only supports sending commands to the first servo motor in the 4-servo array, and uses outdated values for the calculation of the command values
